    Hi Guys,

    I am currently looking for a career change and have always been interested in the Security Industry.

    What I am looking for is some information from people who work/worked in this industry.

    Mainly looking to find out what the best field is to get into and what licence(s) would be the best to get?

    Thanks in advance

    Ridders :)

    I work in IT Security but doubt that's of any interest if you're looking at licences etc.

    Wouldn't say I wasn't interested mate! Have previously done I.T Support so that could be a good option of combining the two maybe?

    Worked in pretty much every sector of private security.

    It's stressful, most of the people in it are fucking idiots, the hours are anti social, any decent jobs are seriously competitive. And unless you have a decent background (ex SF or police) your unlikely to ever get to do any of the top end jobs, which even then aren't amazing. Personally I'd say unless you have a relevant background i think you'll struggle to even make back any decent amount of money against how much it costs to become qualified.

    That's not to say don't look into it, if it's really really what you want to do, But first question I'd ask is why do you want to and what do you think it'll be like?
